[tlhIngan Hol] Can we place adjectives on the nouns of a noun-noun construction ?

Recently, on the "learn klingon" facebook group, there was a discussion,
with regards, whether the two nouns of a noun-noun construction can have
adjectives.

For example {la' Dun vIghro' tIQ} "the ancient cat of the great commander".

Personally, I would avoid using such constructions, because they could be
confusing.

However, I would like to ask, whether there is a rule prohibiting such
constructions.

Because, although I've read that facebook thread, I still don't understand
whether they're illegal or not.
